Comfortable and a bit more expensive, in comparison to public transport, way of moving around the city is taxi.
You can easily get a cab via some mobile app or phone and it will reach you in app. 15-20 minutes. The minimum price is around $10 and it usually covers first 5 km of the trip, after that the fare is calculated based on the distance. Actually you can see the total cost per ride when booking a taxi.
Here are some official taxi services that you are recommended to you, since taking a “gypsy cab” might be a bit risky, especially if you don’t know the language well.

Branded cars of white colour with green and yellow labeling are easy to note and safe to travel with. They combines low cost of transportation, convenience, high speed and VIP class elements in each car: free Wi-Fi during the trip, chargers for smartphones and terminals for bank cards.
English-speaking drivers will get you to a needed destination! The company fixed transfer fares and you can book up to 6 months in advance. The driver will wait for you at the airport holding a name sign.
If by chance you decided to flag a car on a street, be ready to state your destination clearly and agree on a price in advance.
Beware, the yellow sign on a car does not mean that it is an official taxi. So I’d suggest sticking to official service providers.
